Creating videos has been a lifelong passion of mine since I was first old enough to say the words "video camera."   Over the last 7 years I've worked as a freelance filmmaker and video editor with a specific focus on Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.  Creating videos for me is not just a job, it's the thing that gets me out of bed in the mornings.
